Nuno Felted Scarf on Margilan Silk - Mauves & Pinks
Nuno felting involves laying unspun wool fibres and embellishments on silk fabric. It is carefully dampened with soapy water and worked by hand until the wool fibres migrate through the silk to become one fabric. The wool fibres shrink during the process creating shirring and a lovely rippled effect on the back.
This scarf is nuno felted onto Margilan rarefied silk. This silk very fine and has an irregular weave due to the traditional methods of production. Hand woven in Margilan, Uzbekistan from individual silk strands, it is almost transparent yet surprisingly strong. We hand dyed this silk fabric with red cabbage which produces a lovely mauve shade.
The wavy accents and borders on this scarf give it a casual boho look. It is very soft, pliable and drapable. Looks great paired with a jean jacket.The top layers of the scarf are made from soft merino wool in shades of lilac and lavender with silk and fine ribbon accents.
The scarf measures a generous 12 by 54 inches.
Nuno felt is hand washable in cold water with mild detergent or shampoo, do not wring or twist. Lay flat to dry.
Wool, silk are renewable, biodegradable, eco-friendly fibres.
Makes a great gift!
